My blog

A little bit about me and a lot about the things we do.

One month ago...

Our new life began.  Our house deal closed in Swift Current and our furniture was delivered to Deschambault Lake.   The first month has been interesting.  I have been getting use to a new routine.  It is strange being so close to Ron's work....well I guess not strange, different.  When Ron was a Pastor we lived in a parsonage beside the church so it was very close to Ron's work but now it is definitely different.

I am glad that he comes home for dinner breaks and sometimes even coffee breaks (no Tim Hortons here).

I have enjoyed having the days off together.  We use to only have a weekend off together about every 6 weeks.

I have been keeping busy with exercise, baking, planning meals, knitting, scrapbooking and normal household duties.  The house is now in order.  I have registered for two courses for the fall and have some contact names for possible work.

As promised here are some before and after pictures of the house:

So now you have had the tour of our home for the next two years....of course I didn't show you where I hid all the boxes that I won't open but if you want to come for a visit you can search that out for yourself.
Enjoy your Sunday!
